NJ Alleycat

Alleycat race in New Brunswick New Jersey…Saturday, April 8th, 2006

Ever been to New Brunswick New Jersey? Well now is your chance. It’s located in Middlesex County, 31 miles southwest of NYC on the Raritan River. 48,573 people live there according to the 2000 US Census, for those keeping score at home. When I looked it up on the free encyclopedia site, wikipedia on New B…I discovered a few cool fact. In the Transportation section it says New Brunswick has a note-worthy bicycle community, including a co-op and tool collective…
New Brunswick Bike Library
The Bike Library is a program to share bicycles with members of the New Brunswick community by means of direct participation instead of buying and selling. It is just like the concept of a library where books are borrowed for a certain period of time, combined with the concept of a co-op where ownership and reponsibility is a collective among its members.

Located at 154 Commercial Ave. New Bruswick, NJ

Random Triva:
In the movie “Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle,” the main characters attempt to go to the White Castle in New Brunswick, however find it shuttered. In actuality, the New Brunswick White Castle is operating 24 hours a day and is located at 680 Somerset Street

and it is home to the Bouncing Souls, basement punk band.

7th Annual Blessing of the Bicycles
The Catherdral Church of St. John the Devine
107 Amsterdam Ave.
Sat., Apr. 22 at 9:30 a.m.
All cyclists and their friends, including bike messengers, bike racers, bike commuters, recreational bikers, and, of course, children, are invited to this colorful service, which includes a blessing to kick off a safe cycling season.

This event is promoted by Glen Goldstein of the NYC bicycle show.
which, after 6 solid years at the NY armory on 23rd street, is not happening this year cause it got too expensive to put on.

So go to the Cathedral and get blessed and then we all will have a kick ass 2006 on the road! AIIGHT!

    Bike blog readers come in all shpaes and flavors. Maybe the ladies like naked bike messengers, maybe my gay bike messengers like to look at their packages…I think it’s far from dumb. I’m sorry the naked human body had offended you and you’r now a former bikeblog reader. Luckily for you their ore plentuy of heterosexual bike blogs out their that you can find solice in.
